SC Works Trident On the Job Training (OJT) ProgramOften when looking for the perfect employee you will find someone who could be right but is missing the proper training or skills needed. We can help you!

Among our many services that we offer employers we have a program called On-the-Job Training (OJT). This program is designed specifically to help save you the time, energy and money it takes to train a new employee. We not only help you screen potential employees for the right fit but we offer to train them while reimbursing up to 90% of the trainee’s wages during the period of time needed to complete their training.

The OJT program is funded through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), which is a federally funded program to help create a skilled and educated workforce while helping to increase employment opportunities within the region.

SC Works Trident offers a variety of other services for employers. Some of our other services include:

  • Labor Market Information – Information on prevailing wages, in-demand occupations, employment and income statistics, new workforce developments and so much more.
  • Recruiting and Staff Services – We can help with advertising job openings, the application process, schedule recruitment interviews as well as career fairs and can help facilitate pre-hire testing sessions throughout the tri-county region or at your offices.
  • WorkKeys Testing – This is a job skills assessment system which measures real world skills and abilities that are critical to job success.

Some certifications our WIA participants can obtain include:

  • SC Manufacturing Certification
  • Machinist Apprenticeship
  • Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Certification
  • Truck Driver – CDL
  • GED Training or High School Diploma
  • Medical Office Specialist Certification
  • Nurse Aide (CNA)
  • 280 Hour Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW
